70H x 36.5W x 24.5D

Location: Dallas


Hand-crafted from old-growth French walnut, this very unusual piece is a configuration of the homme debout we've not encountered in all our years in this business! A cabinet at the center with a single door is hung by forged steel hinges, and rests on a slightly larger base, separated by a tier of molding, which houses two full-width drawers. Intriguingly, there is a third drawer above the cabinet perhaps to keep the contents out of the reach of children. Carved across its entire façade with masculine themes of the hunt and men-at-war, it stands as a testament to the talents of rural French artisans during the 18th century.
Circa 1780s.
Measures 70H x 36.5W x 24.5D.
